Giggles & Sugar Kisses is a family owned business. Owner, Rhonda started with fabric gift baskets, which she's been making for approximately 15 years. She expanded the idea and filled the baskets with items for baby showers, Christmas, birthdays etc.
"I created my first diaper cake for one of my nieces 4 years ago. Her request for the new baby was disposable diapers. Rather than hand her a package of wrapped diapers, I decided to make a diaper cake. She was thrilled, and suggested that I create other cakes for new mothers.
My daughter who has a degree in business and 13 years of retail experience, fell in love with onesies while she was pregnant. The cake for her baby shower was designed as a onesie, lol. As a result, we created our Yummy’licious, I’m Calling Grandma, and Pimp My Ride layettes.
We created Giggles & Sugar Kisses, and are now offering our items world wide."
Can't get enough? I asked Rhonda what other items are offered in her store, "Giggles & Sugar Kisses offers a diverse line of products. We offer gifts for baby showers, christenings, girlie girl totes to upscale couture layettes and hand crocheted dresses.
Pimp My Ride Layette - Your little prince with love his new friend. Our Pimp My Ride Layette includes 3 pieces: A white cotton onesie with a satin stitched monkey driving a banana car, and a matching bib and crib shoes. Great outfit for the summer!
What makes you/your store unique?
"Giggles & Sugar Kisses offers one stop shopping for busy moms. We specialize in baby shower/new baby gifts. We also offer free hosting tips, games, recipes, and cake ideas for customers needing assistance with hosting a baby shower as well as the diaper cake for the center piece." I checked out her recipes page and I'm dying to try the Oreo Cookie Cake
Giggles and Sugar Kisses' top 3 sellers are their Snoopy Diaper Cake, Winnie the Pooh Gift Basket, and the couture layettes. They plan on expanding their Yummy'licious line this summer and are already hard at work on another layette, several rompers and tees. Make sure you stop by and take a peek.
When asked, "How did you get started with your business?" Tara replied "Actually my business is truly a family biz. My kids are to credit for 90% of my creativity.My daughters have a huge say in my designs from web site to my items they are 100% kid approved. I consult my board members on everything I do! I have been encouraged by my family to pursue this and it is truly becoming a dream come true!"
Did I mention Tara is the mother of 9 kids? That's right 9! So how does she have the time to make these beautiful tutus? "Ah goodness I do have to say I am so unorganized lol and somewhat a FREE spirit. My kids eat at 9 o'clock at night I am famous for appetizer dinners and pizza lol. But I love them and we are doing this together and that's what matters. I am also famous for being on my laptop in bathroom while they are bathing lol. My sidekick is my best friend that's usually how I handle order inquires. I also am very tired all the time lol."
Along with the tutus, the Hip Hop Mama Shop offers Baby Slings, Hip Maternity wear, tutus by other designers, beautiful jewelry for mama and her princesses and soon to come whimsy wall art! New stuff is always being added so check back often. Make sure you order early, it takes about 7 days for shipping because each custom tutu is made with loving hands and handled with extreme care.
